COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Et hundrede år efter at Carlsberg´s grundlægger Carls Jacobsen donerede statuen af den Lille Havfrue til København, er der brygget en øl til at markere denne lejlighed. Mermaid Porter er tjæresort med god fylde og et skum så kraftigt, at man skulle tro selveste Vestenvinden havde blæst det op. Øllet dufter indbydende af friskbagte beskøjter, tovværk og skippers nystoppede snadde. Smagen er rig på varme, malt og lakridsagtig bitterhed. Mermaid Porter er brygget til ære for Den Lille Havfrue udført af billedhuggeren Edvard Eriksen. Det var bryggeren Carl Jacobsen som fik ideen til statuen og det var takket være hans gavmilde donation, at Den Lille Havfrue kunne præsenteres for offentligheden d. 23. august 1913. Ingredienser: brygget af bygmalt, rugmalt, havregryn, hvedemalt, rørsukker, salturt, østers, humle og gær. Flaskens indhold svarer til 5 genstande. Alkohol styrke 10%. Mermaid Porter sælges i en gaveæske med 2 x 0,75 l. øl.

Kulsort med brunt skum. Let syrlig duft med malt, røg og tjære. Smagen er fyldig og let sødlig med bitterhed både fra malt og humle. Fremragende balance, hvor man slet ikke fornemmer den potente alkoholprocent. Eftersmagen er sød og let bitter.

Bottle (Grand Tasting RBESG 2014): Literally black, mid-sized and slowly collapsing tanned head; sweet toasty and fruity (raisins, port) nose; quite solid sweet flavour with a certain bitterness; nearly full bodied and pretty soft; vanilla, toasted malt and caramel in the robust sweet finish. Good and sweet...

PapaVillum (502) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2014
75 cl, flaske, limited edition no 6970, 10,0 % ABV, købt i Husbryggeriet Jacobsens Visitors Center i Valby på den gamle Carlsberg grund, 15. juli 2014. Sort sort Baltic Porter med flot 1 1/2 cm tyk moccafarvet skumtop, tætskummende. Ikke helt "olie" men medium i konsistens. Aromaen er lettere røget og der er duft af tjære, kaffe, brændt malt. Dejlig fuldendt smag af porter. Brændt, salt, bittert, sødt. Rund og fyldig. Meget vellykket balance mellem sødme og det bitter/brændte. Oveni er der den svage antydning af salt qua det tilsatte indhold af østers og salturt. Sidstnævnte to ingredienser kom dog mere til udtryk i fadversionen, som jeg smagte første gang til Ørsted Ølbars Mash Up i sommeren 2013. Brygget ligger desuden dejligt i munden: let perlende og blødt qua et nedjusteret indhold af kuldioxid. Eftersmagen er lang og fastholdende. Én lang nydelse og klart den bedste øl, gutterne på Jacobsen har smidt af sig. Og nu er det ud på terrassen med resten og tænde en cerut som akkompagnement til dette bryg!
